Antiques Roadshow viewers amazed as ‘terrifying’ cuddly rabbit is valued at £2k
Antiques Roadshow viewers were flabbergasted when a "f***ing terrifying" cuddly rabbit was valued at a whopping £2,000 – and advised the owner to "burn it".
The red and white soft toy, which is from the 20s or 30s, was one of the lots on Sunday night's instalment (May 8) of the much-loved BBC show.
The stuffed bunny – which was wearing a pair of little pink shorts and had a bright blue bow around its neck – was called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and was designed by Disney.
The character pre-dated Mickey, but clearly never took off quite as well as the famous mouse.
However, while it was certainly no Mickey Mouse, the owner was told that it was really rare to find an Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in such a good condition these days.
And she was stunned when she was told it was worth a tidy £2,000.
"Wow I wasn't expecting that," she said in surprise.
"I am so pleased I brought him."
"I can't believe how much he is worth," she added.
The lady said that she would "love to find someone who would really appreciate him and show him off a bit".
But viewers said they thought the rabbit was seriously creepy.
One person posted a message on Twitter declaring it was "f***ing terrifying".
And another person joked that they were "traumatised" after seeing the toy on the programme.
One said "he looks like he'll kill you when you sleep", and suggested that the owner really needed to burn it.
"Lucky Rabbit… more like roadkill rabbit…," said another unimpressed viewer.
"Creepy rabbit alert," said another.
"BURN IT WITH FIRE," advised another viewer.
One flustered fan went a step further and suggested the bunny actually looked haunted, tweeting: "Don't have nightmares kids…"
